Solarize to get rid of weed seeds

13 years ago

I have a raised bed that I won't plant in until Spring.

To get rid of the weeds, would it be a good idea to cover the bed with clear plastic and 'solarize' it to get rid of the weed seeds.

Will I damage the good stuff (micro herd and good bugs)? Is it a waste of time since weed seeds may be too deep in the soil to get solaized?
